"There is nothing remotely like this magazine," says National Journal about Reason. And hey, media critic William Powers meant that in a good way, enthusing that Reason is "loaded with sharp content" and "even manages to make deregulation unboring."
So this holiday season, give the gift of Reason, the magazine of "Free Minds and Free Markets." And if you're a Reason Online enthusiast who has never subscribed to the award-winning print edition before, why don't you put yourself on your gift list? (Unlike Santa, we don't care if you've been naughty or nice. Or naughty and nice for that matter.) Print subscribers get their richly illustrated, lushly produced copies a full month before the content shows up on the website.
A year's gift subscription–11 issues–costs just $20 for the first gift and then a mere $17 for any extras. And as long as you place your order by December 2, we'll guarantee that the recipient receives his or her first issue by Christmas.
